• ## server back up… kinda

so as you see the website is up my mail server is bearly working and i still need to get the minecraft servers working and get my network setup to the way it should be so much fun downgrading servers

• ## FUCK this shit

so i have been having a shit time with my server since i upgraded to 14.04 nothing worked very well the NIC kept bugging out random system crashes etc and it all started when i updated to 14.04 im finnaly done with it im going to downgrade to 12.04 LTS so now im backing up data and config files so i can reinstall and be up as quickly as possible i may do the actual downgrade in the next few days

• ## beefgir down

the server is still running (i can access the back end) but the site is inaccessible right now it may be an issue with the domain host or the servers IP may have changed when the web host updated the server
orrrr Beefgir may have forgotten to pay the domain host (wouldn’t be the first time something like that happened)

UPDATE:
beefgir had an issue with his credit card the site should be back up sometime this weekend

• ## Server is up and running

The Bell tech came at about 11  after showing him where I wanted the modem he went on his way testing, 3 minutes later: “The copper is shit so I need to put in a new cable.” so brand new wire to the buildings node (which was recently replaced) FUCK YEAH. About 3 hours later (including a lunch break) we had ADSL sync and internet but slow as hell, reboot the modem got 30ms of latency to local servers 9-13 Mbits down and 0.75-9Mbits up with speedtest

its a bit slower down link then i would like but im happy with it for now as long as its consistent

The server was finally on the internet as of 16:30 there was an issue with ddclient and name cheap that wasn’t allowing the records to update properly after about an hour of dicking around I deleted all the records for my domain names and rest them up and that fixed it (go figure). So now the minecraft server and mail server are running as well YAY.

speed test to a local server:

speedtest to one across the country:

• ## Server move day / internet hookup day

so on June 13th at some point my new apartment will get internet  and there for the server will go to its new home

ISP details:

ISP: colba.net (same as I have now but we dont share with any one, so less slow downs and outages)

ISP estimated speed: 15Mbits down 0.9-1 Mbits up (we are about 1km from the CO )

unlimited bandwidth (unlike every other ISP in Canada)

• ## yay for server fun

moral of the story: no mater how smoothly an OS upgrade goes (even if you get a PEBKAC during it) something will go wrong somewhere when in doubt try turning it off and on again  (or reinstalling).

• ## Email bug

PHP send mail was not playing nice with my ISP and they have been rejecting emails from wordpress that is now fixed

if you registered and did not get a confermation email please let me know in the comments

• ## I need a bit of help

so I got my Atmel xmega-B1 Xplained demo board last week and through the course of the week I have been trying to test it but all I can do with it is play with the pre-programmed stuff on the board because my computers don’t want to recognize the board properly, and unfortunately I don’t have a JTAG programer to do any software testing or even see the debugging info.

The board only shows up as a generic HMI device when according to the documentation it should automatically show up as an Atmel HMI, a mass storage device, and as a COM port. So far I have tried the demo software installed various drivers that I found on Atmel’s website (windows wont let me use any of them) and even Atmel studio 6 does not want to recognize its existence so if any one has a suggestion please let me know
I don’t exactly want to do a review of something I cant properly test I would buy a JTAG programmer but I don’t have the money for it right now

maybe in a few months but not soon
